God of War Ragnarok release date planned for November - report

Sony will indeed be releasing one of its upcoming games before the end of the year, with God of War: Ragnarok reportedly releasing in November. That’s according to Bloomberg, which notes the potential for a game delay. Previous speculation suggested the PS4 and PS5 game would be pushed back to 2023, but for now Ragnarok is slated for release this fall.

Bloomberg indicated that Raganrok’s official release date should be announced before the end of June, but nothing is set in stone yet and it’s possible that the date could be pushed back beyond November. It was apparently intended to release sometime in September, only to then be pushed to the new November window.

In May, Ragnarok was being evaluated for a Korean release, suggesting the game should be out in the relatively near future. However, Sony has yet to officially announce the Ragnarok release date, so all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

God of War: Ragnarok was originally slated for release in 2021, but Kratos actor Christopher Judge suffered an injury that delayed production. The PS4 and PS5 game will have slightly less competition in the first-party race this year, with Starfield pushed back to 2023 by Microsoft and Bethesda.

Some people continue to believe that Ragnarok will be pushed back to 2023, but the game’s animation director said earlier this year that Ragnarok remains on schedule for a 2022 launch. Developer Cory Barlog gave an update on Ragnarok earlier this year, saying that everyone on the team is “head down, hard at work” on the project.

“We’re perfectionists,” Barlog said, adding that he hopes to share more updates and insights into Ragnarok as soon as possible. “We don’t want to hold any of that back. So please hold on – know something cool is coming.”
